    Vaticinal got a reaction from kittykat74 in Breast Augmentation by Dr Ian Chinsee   
    I went with Dr Chinsee and he's been nothing short of amazing! Honestly, I found going through him a great experience and have recommended him to my friends who've gone for surgery as well. I've had 2 girlfriends chose to go with him since seeing my results, and they've been over the moon with their experiences as well.

    I find Dr Chinsee really personable and easy to talk to - he was always available for me to ask questions, and has always gone above and beyond to comfort me about any worries. I'll be going for a revision with him for CC in the next few months and he's been lovely about keeping the cost as low as possible for me given it's a huge stressor right now.

    Hey girls!

    Just a quick question for those of you who are cleared to start wearing normal bras and whatnot- what do you sleep in? I have weird anxiety about ditching my post op bra now! It's so strange because it's left me really uncertain of how things are meant to fit haha. Like, obviously the post op garment was a lot tighter then most things are, but now i'm so unsure and I have all these crop tops from places like kmart that I bought pre surgery in sizes 12 and 14 to account for the new assets (I'm usually a size 10 for reference and they fit fairly snug pre op), but now I'm not sure if these are right or not! I have the blue sports bra from best n less that struggles to zip up, but then it's shoulder straps are quite loose and i'm worried that while sleeping i won't be getting appropriate support.

    Given I never wore a bra pre surgery when sleeping or around the house, i'm super confused as what I should be doing! My next appointment isn't until after the new year, so while I plan to take one of each style of crop to check with my surgeon, I'm still hoping I can find a good alternative for the next month or so that doesn't see me just sleeping in my post op bra/wearing my post op bra around the house haha!

    @Soph132 I'm not 110% clear to go to underwire yet due to my complication on one side (the breast tissue hasn't relaxed on one of the implants properly, so it's a waiting game until my 3 months! It can either fix itself, or at 3 months time we'll fix it ourselves haha!) but I'm allowed in bralettes majority of the time which is awesome! I'm still in the habit of wearing my post op bra when I sleep, but honestly it feels weird to be out of the post op bra most of the time! I find myself weirdly happy to get back into it where I know my boobies are safe haha!

    But yeah! A 10E! I was so shocked. I kept expecting the different stores to tell me otherwise, but they all had the same result. I measured myself when I got home just to make sure as well and yup. E boobies! I never in my wildest dreams expected this haha. It's strange though because they don't look huge in person at all.

    @EmT, @Bond007, @Fi.b thank you all so much for thinking of me! Today I am beyond relieved! 

    I made sure to go in with a list of questions and I got everything I'd been worrying about answered. My surgeon is confident that it is just my breast tissue on the right side being stubborn, and that it should relax within the next two months. We went over all the reasons why it's not a proper double bubble and why it's not window shading and so forth, so I'm feeling a lot more reassured now. 

    If the tissue hasn't completely relaxed by my 3 month check up, we'll be doing a simple little fix through local anaesthetic and I'll only have to pay for that without the surgeon fee. Now that we've discussed the time frame, the cost and what the revision would entail if it had to occur, I'm much, much more content and at ease. Honestly, seeing my doctor again in person was just such a relief and he's super happy with how everything is going. My areola incisions are healing nicely, and I no longer have to wear my steri strips either!

    I may have taken some of the advice TOO well on the weekend though ladies! Saturday saw me drink three bottles of wine, but it definitely helped to ease the stress haha! I handed in my honours project for university today as well, so now I'm 110% done with my post grad study, plus I'm reassured about my boobs AND I'm allowed out of my post op bra so I can show them off as well! I feel like the biggest weight is off my shoulders. I'm due to go up to the sunshine coast this weekend with friends, so I bought a new bikini to celebrate given I'm also cleared for swimming!

    Thank you all so much for the support and listening to me moan and freak out. I'll be sure to keep everyone updated! x

    @donatella unfortunately he actually travels a lot for work, so monday's the earliest I've actually been able to see him since the line appeared. It's my 4 week post op check up, so it'll be my second check up since surgery.

    I appreciate the honesty, and I do try to keep it in mind not to be overly hopeful, but I figure at this point I'm happy to give the benefit of the doubt. It is still early post op, and he's been honest that it might need a revision, and that he intends to see it through if it does. I did ask about an earlier appointment when I first noticed everything, but unfortunately he was in Sydney for the week so we weren't able to do much more then that. By the time I go in to see him, it'll have been just over a week since I first noticed the line so I don't feel like I've been fobbed off too much at this point. 

    It's refreshing to have someone be a bit more realistic about it though, so thank you Donatella! My mum and my partner are treading on eggshells with me at the moment, and I feel like I'm the villain for wanting to be realistic and wanting to get all the facts. But so far at this point, I've got faith in him and from all the messages we've sent back and forward (this is including pictures as well), I'm just relieved to have someone who's happy to take the time to explain everything to me and try to keep me calm. If things feel like they're going south, I'm not scared of going to another surgeon but I do want to believe in the best from my surgeon- especially when he's been so lovely to me. We've discussed the possibility of a revision (I think he hasn't wanted to 100% confirm anything without seeing me in person), and given that he'll be in the Brisbane clinic on monday I think we'll finally be able to start locking everything down! 

    Thank you so much once again though- and especially for the reassurance that it's fixable! I've been scouring the forums the past few days and I've seen a few girls who have had similar issues actually work out with time, so I guess it's just a bit of a waiting game at the moment which sucks because I'm not particularly patient!

    @Kazza @Bearynice thank you both for the kind words! 

    It's just been so frustrating this last week. They were looking so amazing and everything I dreamed of and then this has happened, and at such a bad time as well! Rather then just kicking back and trying to relax, I'm instead rushing around trying to finish a year long project to present on Monday and I'm just a big bundle of anxiety which I know is awful for me! All I want to do is curl up and binge watch some shows, but instead I'm left typing away and trying to get everything organised for this presentation. 

    I'm hoping after Monday I'll just have a bit more certainty about everything. Dr Chinsee has been absolutely wonderful to me, and my partner and my mum are both incredibly pleased with how he's been replying to my problems- but obviously I'm not going to be 100% at ease until he has a look in person so we can actually confirm everything and make a game plan. 

    I've got my fingers crossed at the very least I'll be told that I no longer need the tapes from my donut lift and that I can actually spend some time out of the post op bra. I feel like it's been so hard to put the complications out of my mind when I'm in this post op bra 24/7 and constantly trying to dress to hide it when I go out. I look forward to when I can just throw on anything and can have a normal long shower without worrying about my tapes. The reminder is just irritating, and honestly I've been avoiding seeing friends because I'm nervous that they'll ask me about how it's all going and then I'll be reminded even more. 

    Tonight's plan is to hopefully get some more work done, and then just try to keep myself busy over the weekend as well. My apartment's a mess at the moment, so hopefully I'll be able to get some cleaning done over the weekend but righty has just been so temperamental and I worry about over working it. I think I'm going to try and drive tomorrow (first time in four weeks!) to take myself down to the local shops and do some groceries and buy myself something nice though. Sunday's going to be crazy with running around trying to print stuff off, so hopefully I'll get myself over to Monday without it feeling like it's dragging on too much. I think I'll be taking your advice and indulging a bit in the chocolate and wine over the next few days though.  

    Fingers crossed at the end of all of this it'll be worth it. I'm thankful that despite the complication that they still look lovely when my arms are down. I just keep trying to remind myself at the moment things could be much worse.

    I feel like it's getting worse and worse, plus I woke up with what appears to be mondors cord this morning. I just feel like crying. I don't know how I'm meant to get through the weekend with all this anxiety. 

    Edit: contacted my surgeon again and he's doing his best to put me at ease. I really just want Monday to be here already. ?

The reminder is just irritating, and honestly I've been avoiding seeing friends because I'm nervous that they'll ask me about how it's all going and then I'll be reminded even more. 

    Tonight's plan is to hopefully get some more work done, and then just try to keep myself busy over the weekend as well. My apartment's a mess at the moment, so hopefully I'll be able to get some cleaning done over the weekend but righty has just been so temperamental and I worry about over working it. I think I'm going to try and drive tomorrow (first time in four weeks!) to take myself down to the local shops and do some groceries and buy myself something nice though. Sunday's going to be crazy with running around trying to print stuff off, so hopefully I'll get myself over to Monday without it feeling like it's dragging on too much. I think I'll be taking your advice and indulging a bit in the chocolate and wine over the next few days though.  

    Fingers crossed at the end of all of this it'll be worth it. I'm thankful that despite the complication that they still look lovely when my arms are down. I just keep trying to remind myself at the moment things could be much worse.

    I feel like it's getting worse and worse, plus I woke up with what appears to be mondors cord this morning. I just feel like crying. I don't know how I'm meant to get through the weekend with all this anxiety. 

    Edit: contacted my surgeon again and he's doing his best to put me at ease. I really just want Monday to be here already. ?

    @LaurenT  he's doing his very best to reassure me at this stage, so I'm hoping it's just me being a total worry wort! I've been chatting with my surgeon fairly regularly since I noticed the line, and at the very lease I feel confident if it doesn't go away that it's a relatively simple fix. Thank you so much for your input though!

    Just an update on my situation! I've spoken with my surgeon a bit more and he's being very helpful and lovely. Trying to stick with the advice to just relax, but I'm just stressing so much between this and university. Doesn't help that the day all my assignments are due is the same day as my 4 week check up either haha! The line is still hanging around, but massage is definitely helping out. I think it's amusing to see that my left side has caught up with the right in terms of dropping, but now it's my right giving me trouble.
